Inauguration of the Summer University 2016

We are happy to announce the inauguration of the 27th Summer University on Federalism, Decentralisation and Conflict Resolution by the Dean of the Law Faculty of the University of Fribourg, Prof. Pascal Pichonnaz who welcomed the participants to the University and town of Fribourg. This year we have 39 participants from 23 countries. From nascent democracies like Myanmar to established federal states like Australia and Ethiopia, the participants expect to learn more about federalism, decentralisation and conflict resolution in the intensive three weeks not only from the lecturers and experts but from each other.

The Summer University is organised by the Institute of Federalism and receives financial support from the University of Fribourg and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
